Baal

by Bertolt Brecht
Direction: Nicholas Mockridge


Baal, poet and drop-out, mocks his patrons, humiliates his lovers, drinks and cheats. Even in friendship with Ekart he finds no solace: it is destined to end in tragedy.
With »Baal« (1918/19) Brecht portrayed an anti-social character intended to provoke bourgeois society. Nicholas Mockridge studies directing at the HfS »Ernst Busch«. »Baal« will be his degree show.
